Snow Day at Still Waters Farm!







Here in East Texas we have had 2 snowfalls so far, which is rather unusual.  This week we had several days below freezing in a row which almost never happens.  We tend to measure freezes in hours not days!  It raises some special challenges for livestock raising.  The animals must be bedded down well out of the wind, water has to keep flowing through the hoses, and the troughs have to be cleared of ice so everyone can get a drink.  The reward for all this extra work is the beautiful view!!  Enjoy!
